To extend possibilities in the kitchen, keen cooks should include a steam oven in their appliance selection. Cooking with steam creates nutritious and succulent meals without fuss or complication. Steam ovens create a high-humidity environment, which protects food from drying out, therefore maintaining its nutritional value. Hotpoint’s steam oven technology is designed to help consumers care for their loved ones by ensuring they can deliver healthy and flavoursome dishes, without having to be on constant standby to stop food from spoiling.
What’s more, steam cooking requires no additional fats or oils, which further increases health and wellbeing. This is ideal for today, when we are more aware of our health than ever before, with the Covid-19 pandemic leading consumers to make healthier lifestyle choices*.
Hotpoint has a variety of steam cooking options in its portfolio, starting with its built-in Gentle Steam oven (FA4S 541 JBLG H). Part of Hotpoint’s Class 4 cooking collection, this appliance allows you to achieve delicious and succulent results by simply pouring water into the base of the oven, which has been designed to hold the water securely, and selecting one of the three gentle steam options (fish, bread or meat). The user guide advises the right amount of water to add, as well as the ideal temperature, time and shelf level to cook different foods and retain valuable nutrients.
If you are looking for something more advanced, the Hotpoint built-in Active Steam oven (SI9 S8C1 SH IX H) is part of Hotpoint’s top-of-the-range Class 9 cooking collection with increased versatility. It has a dedicated drawer for adding the water to generate the steam for cooking. The oven benefits from a programme that combines steam with forced air to ensure that food not only remains succulent, tender and flavoursome, it will also be crispy and browned on the outside.
Also included in Hotpoint’s Class 9 collection is the combination steam oven (MS 998 IX H). This is a flexible oven with a combination of both forced air and steam cooking. With a 34 litre capacity, it is designed as an additional oven in the kitchen and Hotpoint recommends pairing it with the Class 9 single pyrolytic multifunction oven (SI9 891 SP IX) to enhance your cooking experience. The combination steam oven (MS 998 IX H) boasts an integrated water tank, allowing for a more flexible installation within the kitchen-living space, compared to those steam appliances that require a connection to a water supply.
Kimberley Garner, Hotpoint Brand Manager, says: “Steam is a wonderful addition to cooking as it keeps food moist, succulent and tender. In addition, it reduces cooking times while locking in precious nutrients and flavour. Steam cooking ensures users get excellent, truly delicious results with their meat and fish recipes, as well as bread and desserts too.”
Aside from the time-saving and nutritional benefits offered by steam, it also provides an effortless solution to cleaning the oven. For example, the Class 9 Active Steam oven (SI9 S8C1 SH IX H) and combination steam oven (MS 998 IX H) both benefit from a 35 minute self-cleaning steam programme. The cycle loosens fat and food residue from the special coating on the oven sides that can be simply wiped away after the programme has ended.
